Sorry for the quality of the image. But I took a couple of photos this evening at 8pm with my mobile while watering the garden. It was hard to capture and this is the best of a not so good bunch. However, you can see that the little native pollinator with the blue striped abdomen is out foraging. It hung around this bush for a good 15 minutes. I would love to stumble on its hive to observe the differences, if any, between this smaller, rounder bee, compared to the honey bees in my backyard. I have a friend who sees them in her garden as well. We are in the Ashburton/Glen Iris area. Has anyone else seen native bees or a native hive in Melbourne or its surrounds?
